Guide for Cable Crossovers

  • To maintain muscle contact with the chest is more important than heavy weights
  • Pull back your shoulders and pinch your shoulder blades together
  • Keep your shoulders down 
  • Be sure to cross your hands at the front to squeeze your inner chest
  • Do not jerk the weight but pull the arms forward in a controlled manner
  • Tense the muscles you are exercising on the way back
  • Exhale as you pull your arms out and inhale on the way back
  • You can load the various parts of the chest differently by varying the height of the bracket
